Mad Mark's Castle
From what I've been told : Mark built this as a place to convert people to his religion, but gave up after a small number of successes.

When I returned in spring '06, the castle had been repainted inside, roof, and back, with gold, and the flagstaff (I assume that's what it is!) added. It's perhaps a little tacky, and too bright on the eyes, but it does match the inscription on the roof (whose photo I though I had, but at casual glance don't see); as best as I can recall, it says, "Dedicated to California and her heart of gold". A pity that some of the artwork inside had been covered up, and more the shame bad graffiti (tags, as opposed to art) is inside now.

I don't seem to have any photos of the old archway. This is where it used to be...

(and you can see that one of the two buildings back there is no longer there. Or not, seeing the non-existant can be a tricky endeavor)

This fence is to keep the evil sprits out of the hollow behind.

The hollow behind...
